Updates on Cody Hall & David Benoit, Indy Wrestler Mocks Triple H, Christmas Bounty Viewers

– At the Dragon Gate USA Freedom Fight event back on November 17th, one-time WWE prospect Johnny Gargano faced Chris Hero, the former Kassius Ohno, and told Hero he was going to bury him “like Triple H did.” During the match, Gargano did a DX crotch chop and hit Hero with a Pedigree, as seen below in the video DGUSA released this week:

– The premiere of WWE Studios’ Christmas Bounty on ABC Family with The Miz in a starring role drew 828,000 viewers on Tuesday night. The movie drew a 0.3 cable rating in the Adult 18-49 demographic.

– We noted before that David Benoit, son of Chris Benoit, is interested in becoming a pro wrestler and has trained with Harry Smith, among others recently. Benoit’s ultimate goal is to get into WWE. Benoit, through an intermediary, and Cody Hall, Scott Hall’s son, have had people check to see if they could join the New Japan Pro Wrestling dojo.

    Suck up to HHH much?

  • Jorge Ruvalcaba

    Or WWE will use his name to get sympathy or bring him in as a guy trying to avenge his father and bury him

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Who cares if some Indy guy mocks HHH probably will never be working for WWE anyway. Not even HHH pays attention to that stuff.

    This might be the first the first time the son of a famous wrestler and his potential career are actually hurt by who his father is. I don’t care how good the kid is WWE probably won’t want to touch him with a 10 foot poll. I’d be hard to completely distance themselves from Chris Benoit if the son he didn’t murder is on the roster.

    If David Benoit ever did get to WWE they know his name would be change straight away
